    Abstract
    (50) and horses (25) of different ages and sex from Abo El Matameer District, Behera Province during the period extended from June 2014 to May 2015 to be investigated for presence of dermatophytes. In addition, 50 samples of hair and skin scrapings were collected from human patients clinically diagnosed as having Tinea of various ages and sex whom their history revealed that there was an animal contact with the examined species. Samples were transported under possible aseptic condition with the minimum of delay to the laboratory of the Department of Animal Hygiene and Zoonoses, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Alexandria University where they were subjected to mycological examination. The obtained results revealed that the overall prevalence of dermatophytosis in different animal species was 74 % and the highest prevalence was observed in examined samples of sheep (78%) followed by buffaloes (76%) then cattle and horses (72 and 68%, respectively). Also, it was observed that the prevalence of dermatophytosis was higher in females than in males in examined samples of cattle, buffaloes and sheep while in examined samples of horses, it was noticed that males was higher than females. Also, it was found that the prevalence of dermatophytosis was higher in examined samples of the age group (˂ 2 years) than in the age group (2- ˃ 2 years). The frequency of isolation of dermatophytes from examined animal species clarified that T. verrucosum was isolated with the highest frequency (47.33%) followed by T. mentagrophytes (14%) and they were isolated from all animal species under investigation then T. equinum (7.34%) that was isolated from examined samples of horses only and finally M. canis (5.33%) that was isolated from examined samples of cattle and sheep only. The overall prevalence of dermatophytosis in examined samples of the clinically suspected human patients was 82% and males prevalence (52%) was higher than females (30%). In addition, the highest prevalence was observed in the age group (15- ˂ 30 years) followed by the age group (˂ 15 years) and finally the age group (˃ 30 years). Moreover, It was noticed that T. corporis constituted the highest prevalence (40%) followed by T. pedis (18%) then T. capitis and T. cruris (16 and 8%, respectively).
